It cannot be run on the Windows RT. The Windows version of Calibre only rus on Intel based systems and the RT does not have a suitable processor as it use an ARM processor. This is a general problem with the RT in that it cannot run standard Windows program - they have to be specially compiled for the RT.

Correct, Windows RT only allows "Modern" apps.
Think of the Surface RT less like a laptop and more like an iPad. You consume content on an iPad (and Surface RT), you don't create content on it (I consider calibre "content creation" because you're creating a library, converting books, and possibly serving them up). Thus you can consume calibre's output with apps like Freda, but you can't run calibre itself.
